It's been awhile and I saved up enough for the 70-200 mark happy with the purchase.
Thanks to everyone for their input!

24-70 + 70-200 is a convenient setting, but is not the only possible one. IMO, you cover more subjects with a 24-70mm (real wide angle to short tele) than with a 70-200 (short tele to long tele).

You could as well consider other (cheaper) combinations :

- 24-70mm f2.8 (or f4 IS) + 135 f2 (keep your 50mm)

- 24-105mm f4 IS + 200mm f2.8 (keep you 50mm)

- 16-35mm f2.8 (or 17-40mm f4) + your 50mm + 70-200mm f2.8

All these lenses are good, but you must define what focal range will be the most useful for you. If you do not know yet, try by any mean to rent or borrow these lenses or some equivalent ones to make up your mind before you spend $2000+.

Have fun with your new toy(s) :)

Canon General / 70-200 F2.8 mark I or mark II?!

Hi guys,

I know this topic probably came up a bunch of times...I'm looking for a 70-200 F2.8 lens.
I've looked at the tamron, sigma and the canon mark i and mark ii...but I cant decide which one!
Anyone have experience with the Sigma and the Canon 70-200 mark i and mark ii that can compare the quality and image quality?!?


BTW I'm shooting with the 5D mark III
